i have done a forum search about back pain/surgery and "relations" (okay, sex, i said it) aftewards, but they all seem to have been posted and discussed at least months ago. i'd like to open a discussion again, because my surgery is friday and i need advice.
i am a female. age 25. will be having L5/S1 fusion surgery from the front (anterior). embarrassed to ask my doctor (yet not embarrassed to ask mass public, hmmmm...) about my sex life afterwards.
anyone who had similar fusion surgery--did your doctor broach the "relations" topic at all? did you ask? and how long did you wait to "do it" after the surgery? are you still waiting because it hurts too much? any advice or tips in general when it comes to the actual act? i don't want pain, don't want him to feel guilty for putting me in pain, but also want to have a "love" life! we will be getting married this october! it can't end already!
